Stuff is coming on and off the Neiman Marcus site quickly. The smoke wasn't there earlier in the day. The smoke color is a bit softer than black but still an excellent basic. SALENM is still working for free shipping. Also, the prices are changing throughout the day (why?!) so the bag might jump back to $590 without warning. Last night, the brandy color was $413 and the smoke $590 and at the moment those 2 prices have flipped. Great for me since I'm not a fan of the brandy! Also, the Botkier trigger in the cognac goatskin is currently $305. When I checked at lunchtime, it was $305 and I snagged the cognac and very luckily the highly elusive Fall06 black trigger. Right after I ordered, the price on the cognac trigger jumped back up to $458 and the black was gone. Whew!
